Crowe, Scott films lost in box office ‘Fog’

Two major directors couldn’t get past a remake and a clay rabbit this weekend, as the latest movies from Cameron Crowe and Tony Scott failed to ignite. Instead, Revolution and Sony’s “The Fog,” a remake of the 1980 frightener “John Carpenter’s The Fog,” unexpectedly snatched the frame’s box office crown, claiming $12 million from 2,972 theaters. Meanwhile, Paramount reported “Elizabethtown,” Crowe’s first film since 2001’s “Vanilla Sky,” ended the weekend with $11 million from 2,517 theaters, which placed it at No. 3 behind “Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit’s” second weekend figure of $11.7 million. The tight spread between the studio estimates between the top three films — just $1.2 million separate them — means that the order of finish may change when final numbers are tallied on Monday. On the limited front, “Capote” and “Good Night, and Good Luck” continued to do brisk business as the Oscar season has kicked off in earnest for arthouse releases. Rounding out the rest of the top five movies, Disney’s durable plane thriller “Flightplan” held on to the No. 4 spot with $6.5 million, which is down 40% in its fourth week. The total on the Jodie Foster title has now reached $70.8 million. At No. 5 was 20th Century Fox’s “In Her Shoes,” which drew $6.1 million in its sophomore session, down 39% from its opening.
